these devastating defense cuts. when we equivocate on our values, it make us look weak. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us. >> that is a bunch of malarkey. this lecture on embassy security. the congressman cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. so much for the embassy security. governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that the ambassador was killed, he was out making political statements. he was panned by the media around the world. this talk about this weakness, i do not understand what my friend is talking about. this is a president who has done everything he has said he is going to do. he has repaired our alliances. this is a guy who brought the entire world to bring about the most -- the most devastating efforts on iran to make sure they stop. these guys bet against america all the time. >> let me go back to libya. what were you first told about the attack? why were people talking about protests? when people in the consulate first saw armed men attacking with guns, there were no protesters. >> we were to
's eve this year, a hundred billion on sequester in defense and nondefense spending will hit. and unemployment insurance will stop, so when you add that up, 700 billion, nearly 5% of gdp on an annualized basis, i'm not confident that political system has capacity to deal with a world wind this massive. neil: why are the markets so sanguine through this? >> there is no one at home on wall street, these are basically robots trading world clouds emitted by federal reserve or other tral banks in the world, they trade day-to-day hour to hour, based on latest new an in word, -- ne nuance in the world, this is not a one time events. neil: some are, jamie dimon of j.p. morgan is marshals for it. >> we're forming now a fiscal cliff war room, command center and all this stuff to make sure we understand it, j.p. morgan will survive a fiscal cliff, i think it is terrible policy to allow it to get close. neil: prepare for something bad? >> i think they are prepared. but -- >> what would a brokerage firm or investorment bank have to do to be repaired. >> i'm not sure, but they have a multi
will be secretary of state or secretary of defense are a? >> the thing is in the romney camp as mike has been describing there is an array of opinion and there is an array of opinion in the foreign-policy camp. from um ambassador to postrel and many in between and i think he is more likely to go with john bolton but we don't know. >> and the wise person just mentioned there's a there is a possibility for secretary of state senator rob portman to become an important advisor, has white house experience under both 41, 43 and would be a reassuring pic. >> let me pick up of what judy said because i think one of the really interesting stories if romney is elected after the guy has been campaigning for the president for eight years but one of the ruin just in questions will be who is the real romney particularly now that he is not running and he will be thinking of re-election but he is not running at that moment for president and we don't know. there would be a battle in the state for the neocons and the foreign-policy and just let me me assist jarden, realist. whether it is selleck or john bolton,
. and not imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does when we equivocate on our values -- it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are -- >> biden: that's all a bunch of ma lar i can. >> be specific. >> biden: the congressman here cut embassy security in his bert by $300 billion below what we asked for. number two governor romney before he even knew that our ambassador was killed he was making a political statement panned by the media around the world. and this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this president has done everything he has said he was going to do. he repaired our alliances so the rest of the world follows us again. he brought the entire world including russia and china to bring about the most devastating -- the most devastating efforts on iran to make sure that they in fact stop -- look i -- i -- these guys bet against america all the time -- >> let me go back to libya. >> biden: sure. >> what were you first told about the attack? why were people talking about protests, when peopl
. the one thing he ran away from, the $2 billion comment that govern the romney made, the defense spending. he could not explain their medicare plan. he tried to run away from the fact on senior citizens over time. he criticized the stimulus plan, the recovery act, stopping the free-fall of the economy. he looked sheepish when the vice president mentioned brian himself had written a letter asking for the money from the program because he said it would help the wisconsin economy and would create jobs in winter -- in wisconsin. i thought congressman ryan was on the run from start to finish. the one thing he did say and the american people heard clearly tonight is they will not hear the commitment to leave afghanistan in 2014. was one of the only things he made clear tonight. it was a decisive victory. >> style vs. content? how would you judge it? >> i do not know how earnest you are when you are running away from every question you ask. i do not think that is earnest. it looked like a principled debate. in terms of style, joe biden is authentic and real. he is straightforward. he says woody
is being addressed. as a matter of fact, we are using the department of defense and a coordinated effort, but i don't believe that we are going to turn the department of defense and to a police organization. we are using our military assets and a prudent way to deal with the introduction, and we have made some success in this area. 70 tons of cocaine have been stopped. but you know when you look at the drug problem, and it is a tremendous problem and there are no so easy solutions to it. it is a complicated problem and it's heading up the effort to try to create a drug free america not only will we utilize national defence and the department of defense we've got to get to education and education ought to begin at home and not to be reinforced in our schools. there is another thing they're will be more important than the premise of this question on a hypothetical of using troops. we will use the military assets. we are not going to -- we will use military assets, but we need to focus on another part of this problem, and that problem as law enforcement. and here is where we have a major di
who kills in self-defense in the home. it's still true that the home in our country is the single most dangerous place for a woman, it's not the street. so we need to look at what really exists, highlight what really exists, see things in a different frame, see equal pay as an economic stimulus. has anybody written about it that way? i have not seen it. and understand the profound deep implications of what we are about. sometimes there is an immediate thing we need to do. obviously we need to reauthorize the violence against women act before the end of this year, right. [applause]. one of the hold was so outrageous because it was about indian country where there is more violence against women and that's what they didn't want. this room knows more about the process of the senate and the house. but sometimes there is an immediate goal of that sort. and then there is the very long-term goal of understanding not to be -- i don't want to frighten anybody here, but it is the key to world peace. that is a huge distance and it's absolutely true. we need to understand that the question can wome
like i have to rush to the defense of people who look boyish. >> but you're not running for vice president. >> thank god. >> but if you were, that would be part of the case you had to make that you were ready. this is not the most important issue tonight, but it has been bugging me as give been doing all this prep is when before mitt romney picked paul ryan he was making the case on the campaign trail that nobody should be allowed to run for president of the united states. amend the u.s. constitution so you couldn't run unless you had significant private sector experience, except for paul ryan who he picked to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as par
on offense from our perspective and five on defense and that is a great opportunity for americans. host: we will go back to our campaign 2012 bus down in danville, ky. caller: good morning, my question is -- does either party have any plans for rehabilitating recent veterans suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder? guest: in the last congress, democrats passed the new gi bill which was the largest new assistance to veterans coming home since the gi bill and the second world war. our party has a good track record on this issue. in the most recent congress, republicans repeatedly voted against insuring that troops receive their pay in the event of a government shutdown but made sure they got paid. i think the record there is pretty clear. guest: that does speak for itself, everyone got paid the fact is, we need more jobs especially for our troops returning home with me to get our economy moving again. we are focused on making sure we are not taxing job creators and reducing government spending which is hampering job growth. jobs, jobs, jobs is what the speaker has said from the beginnin
